It’s nice to be in New York City again, if only virtually. This was snapped by my friend Echo in the Spring Street subway station. Look out– I apparently play “for fun.”
The shoot was this summer in Elgin, TX. It was over 95 degrees that day. It was about a hour’s drive away and my sweetass mom car (a 1982 Mercedes station wagon 300TD) has no air conditioning. By the time I got there, I was a sweaty red ball of nasty. The makeup people put me in front of about eight fans and an open refrigerator so I wouldn’t look like a freak. Then they gave me those purple pants to try on.
B gave me coaching on how to convincingly hold a guitar before I left the house. This was prompted by him asking me, “Do you know how to hold a guitar while sitting?” I said “OF COURSE I DO” then I did what felt natural and he promptly pissed himself laughing. His lessons paid off though when they put me in the chair, handed me the guitar, I gripped it as instructed and the art director goes “Cool, you play.” I said “Uh no, but you know…I’ve had lessons.”
